'Games cause rape' psychologist's book gets raped

0

Carol Lieberman, the psychologist and author who claimed that videogames encourage young men to go out and rape has been hit with swift Internet justice. In a move that mirrors the way in which Cooper Lawrence was punished for telling lies about Mass Effect, Lieberman's latest book has been mauled in Amazon's user reviews section.

Yesterday, Bad Girls only had six reviews and a five-star user rating. Today, it has thirty-seven, with a two-star rating. A childish recourse, yes, but it actually worked against Lawrence, and maybe it will teach Lieberman that spouting off ignorant bullshit for the salivation of FOX readers does have repercussions. 

"I have it on high authority that people reading books with sexy leg outlines tends to lead to a rise in rape victims," reads one review. "Most of these victims never even saw it coming. They were casually in a store aisle questioning what millions see in Twilight when all the sudden, rape happens. Not even the fancy romantic rape, with months and months of stalking. Nope, just pure sudden rape. Must be those videogames."

Another review called the book "Mein Kampf meets Playboy." It would appear that, while videogames do not cause rape, slagging videogames off without evidence or logic can lead to you getting forcefully f*cked in the ass.
